    The ribs and briskets were tender, juicy, and flavorful - mildly seasoned. Perfect texture of the meat! I don't know what they did to the pork, but it was nothing like what I had in other BBQ joints.

    The ribs, the pulled pork and the brisket are awesome. The Cole slaw is also amazing. The potato salad is different but very good. The only thing that isn't the best ever is the Mac and cheese.

    Some of the best BBQ I've ever had! Ordered a bit of everything but the highlight was definitely the ribs. Drown it in their homemade BBQ sauce and you can't go wrong. Cheeky little cocktails too

    Thrillist Top BBQ List: ...the juicy, perfectly textured ribs and the succulent pulled pork (excellent with the apple cider vinegar-kicked sauce), and the creamy mac & cheese

    This is completely the real deal. Great ribs, great beans. Coleslaw and mac&cheese. Very cheap. Genuine place. Wifi. Outside space.

    People rave about the pulled pork (which warrants its praise!) but the unsung hero is the melt-in-your-mouth ribs. You may even see Kermit Ruffins stop by before a show at Vaughan's.

    The best ribs I've ever had! Go for a combo of 2 meats. Pick ribs, brisket or pulled pork! Thanks to recommendation of @humidfoodie!

    Pork ribs were perfectly cooked and the baked beans are worth writing home about. Stop by here for great ribs and deserts too!!

    The brisket is very good. The pulled pork is great (mix with Mac and cheese.) The ribs are the best I've ever eaten and its not close.

    All of the sauces are very very vinegary, so if you're into that, you'll love it. Me, not so much. Great patio. Great corn grits. But overall, not worth it.

    The closest you can get to Eastern NC-style pulled pork when you use the vinegar sauce. Mac and cheese is also great.

    The ribs are the best thing here, and the baked beans are probably the best side. The sauces are vinegar-based.

    Brisket is the best meat. Mac n Cheese is the best side. Peanut Butter pie is the best dessert

    Great food, funky place, reminds of the hippest places in San Francisco. Pulled pork and sweet tea can't be beat!

    The W Special with 2 sides is indulgent perfection for $15. Split it with a friend, add two beers, and pat yourself on the back.

    Pulled pork a little spice. Rack is good with out sause, different. BBQ sause is vinaigrette sweetish.

    If you're heading back to see Kermit at Vaughan's, don't get in line with everyone else. Just put a take-out order in at the bar and grab a drink. Kermit's probably there having dinner himself.

    Half rack and beans with a cold beer. Try the sauce in the big bottle, numms.

    All of the sides are amazing. And obviously the pork BBQ sandwich is too.

    I had the 1/2 rack of ribs and it was the bomb! Mac & cheese is also excellent.

    Stick with the ribs, they're tender and subtle flavorful. The potato salad is good too.

    Pulled pork sammy topped with cole slaw does not mess around. Put some Crystal on that bitch. Bitches love Crystal. Mac n cheese ain't too bad, neither.

    The W plate is a little bit of everything, brisket, pulled pork and ribs, plus a side. Perfect to share!

    Okay I've tried it twice now and was disappointed both times. Chicken was dry, pulled pork was dry, ribs were kind of dry. I love my bbq super saucy, so maybe its not my style.
